best preschool books for the letter Xx

Here are our favorite preschool books for the letter Xx!  We love visiting the library and finding new books each week! Reading takes a huge priority in our home — we like to read every morning, noon, and night!  Children will love to read if we give them the tools — I hope this list is helpful to you!

My four year old son is incorporating beginning sounds with words all the time — and the reason is because he reads.  We read together, and he reads on his own.  Even looking at the pictures, generating the storyline in his head, and looking at letters — this is reading.  Reading opens a world of imagination and creativity for our children.

We are still floating through the alphabet, though in a more relaxed way, and one of the main reasons why we focus on one letter at a time is to find new books from our home library or city’s library.  I will usually collect a small stack of books and read them at breakfast time and try to emphasize the beginning of words. We cycle through the small stack throughout the week during meal or other quiet times in the day. This is a fun way to read new books and reinforce some beginning sound phonics work.

Reading benefits a child’s mind, a child’s speech, a child’s life. You can read more about why reading is one of the most important things you can do with your baby or child at 10 reasons to read to your child.  And I am making a preschool list for all of our favorite books from A to Z.  I hope you and your child enjoy our children’s books selections for letter Xx!
